I’ve created a new sidebar using simple sidebars and it works great with pages, posts and the standard post type categories.
For some reason the simple sidebars drop downs don’t appear on my custom post type called “products”.
I’ve added the following to my custom_functions:
add_post_type_support( ‘products’, ‘genesis-simple-sidebars’ );
It makes the drop down appear on the product pages but not for the product categories.
Any ideas how to make the drop downs appear on category pages?
You could use another custom sidebar plugin
Thanks Brad, i’ll check it out!
Same problem Brad, I can only see the categories from “posts” and not my “products” post type.
I wonder if it’s a problem with the theme? I’m using Clip Cart 1.3.2 by Themedy. I’ve asked Themedy about it, but apparently they have no experience with custom sidebars! – they did tell me to lodge a support ticket with Studiopress which I did. Studiopress told me to ask the forum because it meant making changes to my theme.
My aim is to show useful information to users based on their category selection within products.
Frustrated I am.
Custom Sidebars Plugin is the easiest way. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-sidebars/
You may also be able to add support for Genesis Simple Sidebars for archives.
Assuming your Custom Post Types is called ‘movie’, you need to add the following line in your functions.php
Replace ‘movie’ with whatever your CPT is called.
Hop this helps!
